  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Tommy Togiai, DT, Ohio State
    As written earlier, the Jaguars really miss Calais Campbell. More than one player is needed to replace him.

  2. New York Jets: Quincy Roche, DE/OLB, Miami
    The Jets signed Carl Lawson, but they still need to add another pass rusher.

    Quincy Roche needs to bulk up, but he has plenty of explosion of out of the snap.

    Pick change; previously Shaka Toney, DE/OLB

  3. Houston Texans: David Moore, G, Grambling
    The Texans traded for Marcus Cannon, but they still need to improve their blocking.

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Daelin Hayes, DE/OLB, Notre Dame
    The Falcons can't seem to fix their edge rush, so they'll have to keep adding players to help in that regard.



  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Jacoby Stevens, LB/S, LSU
    The Bengals need as many talented linebackers as possible to deal with Lamar Jackson.

  6. Philadelphia Eagles: Peyton Ramsey, QB, Northwestern
    The only quarterback on the roster behind Jalen Hurts is Joe Flacco, which is not ideal.

  7. Carolina Panthers: Paddy Fisher, LB, Northwestern
    The Panthers will be hurting at linebacker for quite a while because of Luke Kuechly's retirement.

    Paddy Fisher was unbelievably productive for Northwestern despite being a freshman. He's become one of the top linebackers in the Big Ten.



  8. Denver Broncos: Tommy Tremble, TE, Notre Dame
    The Broncos are looking for a tight end to pair with Noah Fant.

  9. Detroit Lions: Divine Deablo, S, Virginia Tech
    The Lions will have to target numerous defensive backs to fix their woeful secondary.

  10. New York Jets: Hamlicar Rashed, DE/OLB, Oregon State
    I could see the Jets adding a second pass rusher to make sure they can get ample pressure on opposing quarterbacks.



  11. San Francisco 49ers: Tedarrell Slaton, NT, Florida
    The 49ers love acquiring talent to their defensive line, so they'll likely select multiple players to add to that area.

    Tedarrell Slaton is a massive nose tackle who causes lots of disruption.

  12. Miami Dolphins: Osa Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA
    The Dolphins need to place as much pressure as possible on Josh Allen to overtake the Bills.

    Pick change; previously Michael Carter, RB

  13. Minnesota Vikings: Buddy Johnson, LB, Texas A&M
    Minnesota's lack of linebacker depth was exposed when the team lost Eric Kendricks and Anthony Barr to injury. The Vikings could fix that problem with a mid-round pick.

  14. Houston Texans: Jamie Newman, QB, Wake Forest
    Deshaun Watson may not play for a long time, so the Texans will have to draft a quarterback at some point.

    Jamie Newman has nice passing talent and can also beat the opposition with his legs.



  15. Los Angeles Chargers: Brandon Stephens, CB, SMU
    The Chargers will need to address their cornerback situation twice, given that the Chiefs stand in their way.

  16. Arizona Cardinals: Isaiah McDuffie, LB, Boston College
    Haason Reddick is an impending free agent, so he'll need to be replaced if he leaves.




  17. Buffalo Bills: Elijah Molden, CB, Washington
    The Bills re-signed Levi Wallace, but they still have depth issues at cornerback.

    Elijah Molden is a gritty slot cornerback who tackles well.

  18. Las Vegas Raiders: Marques Stevenson, WR, Houston
    The Raiders could obtain another receiver just in case John Brown can't stay healthy.

    Marques Stevenson has incredible speed.

    Pick change; previously Dayo Odeyingbo, DE/DT

  19. Washington Redskins: Jonathan Marshall, DT, Arkansas
    The Redskins have a great defensive line, but adding depth never hurts.



  20. Chicago Bears: Shi Smith, WR, South Carolina
    Anthony Miller is rumored to be on the trading block, so the Bears will likely draft a receiver at some point.

  21. Indianapolis Colts: Ambry Thomas, CB, Michigan
    The Colts re-signed Xavier Rhodes, but he's an older player who will need to be replaced soon.




  22. Tennessee Titans: Trill Williams, CB, Syracuse
    The Titans' top two weaknesses last year were their pass rush and their cornerback play, so here's some help for the latter situation.

  23. Las Vegas Raiders: Michal Menet, C, Penn State
    The Raiders apparently like Andre James to take over for Rodney Hudson, but they should obtain some competition.

  24. Minnesota Vikings: Noah Gray, TE, Duke
    The Vikings cut Kyle Rudolph, so they'll need to find another tight end.

  25. Cleveland Browns: Ben Cleveland, G, Georgia
    The Browns could use a mid-round pick to add to their offensive line depth, given how important the blocking is for Baker Mayfield (based on his improvement from 2019 to 2020.)



  26. Jacksonville Jaguars: Tuf Borland, LB, Ohio State
    The Jaguars have poor depth at linebacker, which they must address.

  27. Baltimore Ravens: Royce Newman, G, Ole Miss
    Not only must the Ravens replace Orlando Brown; they also have to find someone to fill Marshal Yanda's shoes.

    Royce Neman played tackle at Ole Miss, but will have to move to guard in the NFL.



  28. San Francisco 49ers: Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina
    I'm sure Kyle Shanahan will spend a third-day pick on a running back he'll eventually turn into a star fantasy player. Michael Carter had a great week at the Senior Bowl and may have put himself into Day 2 consideration.

    Pick change; previously Kylin Hill, RB

  29. Green Bay Packers: Shaka Toney, DE/OLB, Penn State
    The Packers will need to pressure Tom Brady as much as possible to beat the Buccaneers in the playoffs.

    Pick change; previously Walker Little, OT

  30. Buffalo Bills: Tommy Kraemer, G, Notre Dame
    The Bills should add an offensive lineman at some point because Josh Allen saw too much pressure in the AFC Championship.

  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Stone Forsythe, OT, Florida
    Despite trading for Orlando Brown, the Chiefs still need tackle help.

    Stone Forsythe emerged as a starter in 2019 and then blocked well this past season.

  32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Robert Hainsey, G, Notre Dame
    The Buccaneers haven't drafted an offensive lineman yet, which is something they have to do in order to protect their 44-year-old quarterback.

  33. New England Patriots: Camryn Bynum, CB, California
    The Patriots have some older cornerbacks they'll need to replace in the near future.

  34. Green Bay Packers: Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC
    The Packers really need to shore up their receiving corps, so another wideout should be added.

    Amon-Ra St. Brown had a big sophomore campaign, catching 60 passes for 750 yards and three touchdowns.

  35. Dallas Cowboys: Trevon Grimes, WR, Florida
    It'll be difficult to keep Amari Cooper on the roster much longer, so the Cowboys will need to obtain a receiver.

    Trevon Grimes is a mismatch weapon with nice play-making ability.

  36. San Francisco 49ers: Dax Milne, WR, BYU
    The 49ers could stand to add some depth at receiver.

  37. Kansas City Chiefs: Kenny Yeboah, TE, Ole Miss
    Andy Reid likes using multi-tight end formations, so the Chiefs could add a tight end at some point in the final few rounds.

  38. Atlanta Falcons: Jaylon Moore, OT, Western Michigan
    Adding another talent to the offensive line wouldn't hurt, given the youth movement at quarterback.

  39. Atlanta Falcons: Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State
    Julio Jones may not have many years remaining in Atlanta, so the team is likely to obtain a receiver.

    Tamorrion Terry is a big, athletic receiver who could sneak into Day 2.

  40. Baltimore Ravens: Neil Farrell, NT, LSU
    The Ravens could stand to add some depth on their defensive line, given some of the aging players there.
